I don’t usually get star struck, but I met Sir Paul McCartney randomly on Sunset Boulevard a few years ago, and I lost it! I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t think, and I didn’t know how to speak. It was crazy. He was nice enough to talk to my family and me for 10 minutes, but I remember babbling away about nonsense.
Sterling Knight
We’re all aware of the huge plastic crisis and the effect it’s having on our planet. Fashion has a key role in that, but also there are ways we can deal with it.

Dee Dee got the name ‘The Ramones’ from Paul McCartney. McCartney would call himself Paul Ramon when he checked into hotels and didn’t want to be noticed. I liked it because I thought it was ridiculous. The Ramones? That’s absurd!

Fred Armisen

Nathaniel Rateliff
I think of talent as being God-given. I know that contradicts what a lot of people believe, but that’s how I see it. I think the Beatles were meant to be, you know? So when I listen to Paul McCartney, I think, ‘Here’s the person that God gave the gift of allowing him to write ‘Let It Be.’

Lil Yachty

Jason Robert Brown
‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ is a great classic by Paul McCartney and John Lennon, I sure love that song. I did like the classic version, a rock-oriented song, then someone heard me do it with the Grant Green approach – Grant Green and Larry Young did it, with a bossa nova beat on the funky side.

Look at Paul McCartney, look at Elton John. They’re jealous of Justin Timberlake. I’m sure they were jealous of me when I was in my imperial phase.
Robbie Williams
‘The Beatles’ did whatever they wanted. They were a collection of influences adapted to songs they wanted to write. George Harrison was instrumental in bringing in Indian music. Paul McCartney was a huge Little Richard fan. John Lennon was into minimalist aggressive rock.
Chris Cornell
Everybody who I ever cared about has told me that they like my music: Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Al Green, The Spinners, Smokey Robinson. Everybody that matters.
Daryl Hall
People say, ‘Oh God, you’re name-dropping.’ Well who else comes to your house when you’re John Lennon? These were normal friends to him. McCartney, Jagger, they’d stop in and I’d order pizza or Mick’s favorite beef curry from the local Chinese restaurant. We did normal things.
May Pang

Nancy Wilson
There weren’t a lot of girl singers around. Paul McCartney and John Lennon were the guys I looked up to.
Rick Springfield
People who aren’t known for being artists do come in for criticism when they exhibit pictures. Paul McCartney, Tony Curtis, Mo Mowlam’s husband are all at it – and what’s to stop them? In my case, I don’t see the comedy and the art as separate at all – you’re just bending your creativity in a different direction.
Vic Reeves
People say the Beatles were John Lennon. What is Paul McCartney? Chopped liver? But everyone has their own favourite members whose creativity they gravitate to. That’s normal.
Mike Love
I’m a fan of designers and clothes that look beautiful, but more importantly, make me feel beautiful and confident. It’s why I’ve always loved Stella McCartney, and more recently, Prabal Gurung. Their pieces are cool, yet timeless, and the fits are effortlessly flattering.
Shay Mitchell
Rock stars’ wives have never been given an easy time. They weren’t nice about Linda McCartney till she died.
Trudie Styler
I can’t make Based God music all the time. The Based God is something that is better than Lil B and better than Brandon McCartney; he’s something that I aspire to be.
Lil B
Most of my ukulele heroes were traditional players from Hawaii, like Eddie Kamae and Ohta-san. There may not be uke stars in popular culture, but there are certainly pop stars that play uke – George Harrison, Eddie Vedder, Taylor Swift, Train, and Paul McCartney.
